Here is a great snack recipe to get you started. They taste great alone or dipped. I have given these as treats during the holidays, inspired by my friend Sandra who gave them to me (along with the recipe)! Just put in a decorative bag alongside a crock of cheese for a great gift.
1 c. vegetable or canola oil
2 t. Cayenne pepper
1 T. garlic powder
2 pkgs. Hidden Valley Ranch dry packets
2 pounds of pretzels, any shape
Preheat oven to 200 degrees. Spread the pretzels over two cookie sheets or in one big roaster pan. Mix oil, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, and ranch packets together. Pour over pretzels and mix to coat evenly. Bake pretzels for one hour stirring every 15 minutes.
